Dr. Na-Ajele Gadija Williams Buffonge is Antigua and Barbuda’s latest PHD graduate


Dr. Na-Ajele Gadija Williams Buffonge is Antigua and Barbuda’s latest PHD graduate.

She recently achieved this phenomenal academic accomplishment by completing her dissertation which is entitled, ‘Caribbean Lecturers’ Believed Barriers to Technology Adoption from a Tertiary Viewpoint.’

The Walden University graduate has lectured at the University of West Indies for more than a decade and has served as a Practicum Supervisor at UWI Open Campus. She has also enjoyed an illustrious career at the Antigua State College for more than sixteen years. She holds a Master’s of Science in Education and undergraduate degrees in English and Education.

Her groundbreaking research examines the adoption of educational technology and could not come at a better time. Dr. Williams-Buffonge said, “I decided to explore this topic in 2011 because it was relatively new to the Caribbean’s educational arena and I felt that it could positively impact student’s learning and enrich the teaching methods of lecturers. I never imagined that we would be facing a global pandemic that would force educators and guardians to rely on technology as the primary method for teaching students of all ages. I am committed to capitalizing on this moment and taking the opportunity to share my research and knowledge with key stakeholders and assist them with strategies that will enable them to overcome barriers to technology adoption through innovation and collaboration.”

Her research has filled a huge gap because it finally puts Antigua and Barbuda and the Caribbean on the map by providing regional data that can inform current academic discourse about the impacts of technology adoption in education. The proud graduate plans to continue to pursue this area of research and she also hopes to mentor students and lecturers so that they too can reach their academic goals and contribute to the betterment of the twin island state.

What a woman who has always loved what she has does. But what I admired most is that she has always cared about all her students. What I most admired about MS.

She even coached the debate team at the Antigua State College and I can’t believe she was still working on her PhD. Lady, how did you that!
